Empirehouse earns second phase of NACC Certification meeting national quality and safety standards.
The second year assessment of Empirehouse’s certification process with the North American Contractor Certification (NACC) was held April 13-14, 2017. The audit conducted by Administrative Management Systems, Inc. (AMS), and overseen by an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) auditor, took place at the Empirehouse corporate office and production plant where metal frames were being fabricated, and at the Mystic Lake Hotel and Convention Center job site while our glazing team installed frames and glass.
On June 13, 2017, Empirehouse earned the second phase of NACC Certification as an Architectural Glass & Metal Contractor.
